I think it goes without reason, you pay for what you get, if the cheaper lens was as good as the pro lens, then why are we shooting with pro lens.

Agreed I stopped believing in the 'diamond in the rough' with regards lens having had many through my hands and finding they're all missing the 'Diamond'

Whereas even poorly reviewed decent glass I've found to more often than not exceed my expectations.

The da*16-50 is  one of these often maligned and even ridiculed yet having used the Sigma and Tammy cheaper alternatives (17-50 and 18-50DC) I ended up with it .

The main truism I've found that can be applied to lens , tripods and most photographic equipment is there are no cheap alternatives there's only cheap.
